In an effort to help give young people firsthand experience in the day-to-day work of a state lawmaker, State Representative Kristina Daley Roegner (R-Hudson) welcomed two individuals from the 42nd District to Columbus—one as an office intern and one as a shadow for the day.
Alex Duquenne of Hudson is a sophomore at The Ohio State University who is majoring in public affairs. She has interned in Rep. Roegner’s office for a year, assisting the representative with various legislative and constituent issues over the course of her internship.
“It’s nice to be able to apply the skills I learn in the classroom in a real-life setting,” said Duquenne. “As an intern in Rep. Roegner’s office, I get to see state government in action.”
Ashley Mosteller, who shadowed Rep. Roegner for the day, graduated from Wheaton College with a degree in international relations and Spanish. Originally from Hudson, she also interned for the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C.
“I greatly enjoyed my visit to Representative Roegner’s office,” Mosteller said. “It was exciting to gain a firsthand look into the legislative process and the daily work of a public policymaker in our state’s capital.”
“It is a pleasure to see these young women take an interest in state government,” said Rep. Roegner. “My office is always open to constituents interested in state issues.”
